Nothing is Impossible



"Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”(Matthew 17:20).

Do you sometimes feel limited in what you can do in your Christian life? There are times I feel limited, but this is just a lie. There is no limit to what I can accomplish. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (Philippians 4:13). If God has called me to do something, He will supply the strength that I need. He faithfully empowers those He calls (1 Thessalonians 5:24). I will never give up because something seems beyond my power to accomplish. In my weakness, I shall realize His strength and power that moves mountains.

What has the Holy Spirit called you to do that seems beyond your capability? In your mind, it may be. But the Lord always sees your potential. There is power in what you consider weakness in your life. Your weakness is just an area that calls to be surrendered to Him so that His power and glory may be exemplified in you. Consider the weakness of what you might think is your small faith. When that small seed of faith is surrendered to the Lord, you can tell your mountain to move. Nothing is impossible.

Pansies bring color and beauty to the coldness of a winter morning. Sometimes, when it is freezing, they are shriveled and withdrawn, and their beauty is hidden by the cold air pressing upon them. As warm water is poured upon them, they open to the winter morning and stand strong and beautiful in the frigid air. I, like a pansy may be weary and shriveled from circumstances which surround me. But if I surrender to the warm power of His Spirit, and not to my pressing circumstances, He pours himself into my life. There is no task that He has called me to do that I can't accomplish.

I know then that in Him all things are possible.
